Almost 50 female drummers are selected as finalists by the Hit Like A Girl Global Contest for Female Drummers and Percussionists. That is a mouthfull, but an even more impressive amount of talent that entered the contest. A great contest for that matter, because more drummers are always welcome, and female representation in the market is even more needed. There are 23 drummers in the under and over 18 age divisions. Below you find the complete list of finalists. Their names are links to their contest pages on the HLAG website. The winner will get $20,000 in prizes.
